I have a lot of random thoughts going on; hence, today’s post may be a bit jumbled since I’m going to dump ‘em all out. But hey itz Friday, so that’s gotta count for something, right? Right.
I’m thinkin’… I’m excited to lift weights this morning! I had been lifting weights on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, but this week was a little different. I did a total body workout on Monday, took a rest day on Tuesday, and then incline walked on Wednesday and Thursday. It made me miss strength training (yes, I really do miss those weights!), so I’ll be sure to get in a good workout this morning.
I’m thinkin’… Mizuno compression socks are great when traveling – in the car or plane! They keep the blood flowing while minimizing swelling.
I’m thinkin’… I should probably take a short break from almond butter. I’ve gone through two jars in ten days. I’m all about enjoying foods and no deprivation, however I’m also a believer in moderation and two jars in ten days just is not moderation. (Raw creamy unsalted from Trader Joe’s is my favorite!) I’ll be back for you, almond butter.
(No worries: you KNOW I’ll scrape out every last bit of that almond butter during this morning’s breakfast of oats in a jar!)
I’m thinkin’… Chobani is SO generous for sponsoring my school’s first “Wellness Wednesday.” I’m on the Wellness Committee and we want to start providing healthy snacks for our staff members once a month. We had such a positive response from people trying Chobani for the first time – they loved it! (I mean, who doesn’t??) And now about 80 more people know that Chobani is a great snack, especially on the go. Whenever people ask me about yogurt, I always suggest greek yogurt since itz packed with protein and keeps you full much longer than regular yogurt.
I’m thinkin’… I had a lovely dinner with my friend Danielle and her daughter Addyson last night at Sweet Tomatoes. I’m not usually a buffet fan, but all you can eat salad bar with fresh veggies? Count me in! (My Instagram friends saw the massive salad beast I made last night.) Addyson had fun tasting lots of healthy food: broccoli, butternut squash, sunflower seeds, kidney beans, spinach, and chickpeas. Start those healthy habits young! “Mmm mmm mmm! This is good!” Yes, she really said that while munching on a piece of broccoli.
I’m thinkin… I wish Zoey felt better. She has really bad allergies and gets skin infections a lot. We had to take her back to the vet (again!), and now she is on several different medications. Well, last night after dinner she got sick. I’m hoping she tolerates the meds a bit better today and we can kick this infection! But she’s still super cute…
What are YOU thinkin’ today?
